NWF: “Massive Momentum” Behind Climate & Clean Energy Bill
House Democrats have unveiled the details of comprehensive clean energy & climate legislation that could come up for a vote in a matter of days. Here’s what Joe Mendelson, the National Wildlife Federation’s director of global warming policy, had to say:
House Democrats are nearing a historic agreement that would clear the way for the Energy and Commerce Committee to pass a clean energy jobs plan by Memorial Day. We are witnessing a remarkable coalition united from oil patch states to the Rust Belt and beyond. It’s clear now that there is massive momentum to deliver comprehensive climate and energy legislation to President Obama this year.
Congress must act now to begin building a new clean energy economy that will generate millions of clean energy jobs, break our dependence on oil and reduce the carbon pollution that causes global warming.
Please take a moment right now to send a message to your member of Congress to help this legislation get the support it needs by Memorial Day!
